A new high-tech fiber that combines the elasticity of rubber with the strength of a metal has been developed by US scientists.

The tougher unbreakable material mimics the human skin but also conducts electricity and heals itself after use, important factors for stretchable electronics and soft robotics.

It could also be used for packaging materials or next-generation textiles.

Native American tribe donates $184,000 to cover funeral costs for Alabama tornado victims

snip:

A Native American tribe in Alabama is donating $184,000 as part of an effort to cover the funeral costs for the 23 people who died this week in an outbreak of tornadoes.

“The Tribe is making a $184,000 donation to the East Alabama Medical Center Foundation to assist in the burial of the victims from last Sunday’s devastating tornado in Lee County, AL," Stephanie A. Bryan, Tribal Chair and CEO of Poarch Band of Creek Indians, said in a Facebook post last week.
"It is at times of greatest need that we often see our communities coming together to help one another, this is one of those times. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of those affected.”

The money from the tribe will be donated to East Alabama Medical Center Foundation to make sure none of it is spent on administrative costs, "My goal was to be able to provide what the families wanted" for "this casket or this service without having to scrimp because they didn't have the money," Harris said. "These folks have stepped up for a community need, and I appreciate that."

Harris added that other local organizations have pitched in to cover funeral costs. He said that a notable person from Alabama pledged to donate $10,000 for footmarkers for graves.

The community effort comes as Lee County grapples with the damage incurred by an outbreak of tornadoes that killed 23 people, including several children.

President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump visited the region and met with victims' families last week. Trump also signed an emergency disaster declaration that authorized federal aid for parts of the state.

According to its website, the Poarch Band of Creek Indians is the only federally recognized Native American tribe in Alabama. The tribe manages a number of businesses, including gaming facilities and hotels.

A little girl in the town of Bensheim saw a chubby female rat struggling to escape from one of the smaller openings in the manhole cover.

Due to the rodent’s excessive amount of “winter flab”, she was unable to bring her hips through the grate.

By the time the little girl’s family had called firefighters to the scene, local animal rescuer Michael Sehr was already struggling to free the fat critter – but to no avail.

The firefighters then pried open the manhole cover and kept it supported while Sehr gently worked the rotund rat loose from the other side.

That`s a rat FFS, kill it and move on...
Fuck That Shit!

It is said that it is far better to give than to receive.

Robert Miller, 68, is currently recovering from a life-saving kidney transplant, given to him by an anonymous donor.

Miller was on the other end of the surgical procedure 20 years ago, in 1999, when he donated his bone marrow and saved the life of a young man in a coma.

With tears in his eyes, Miller emotionally said it was humbling to know that he was able to save someone's life. "How could I say no?" he declared.

Miller would like to say 'thank you' to the man who gave him the gift of life, but the donor wishes to remain anonymous.

"Thank you," says Miller, "Thank you for saving my life."
